A 12-year-old boy sustains multiple injuries after being hit by a tricycle

A 12-year-old child who attended extra classes was involved in a collision with a tricycle on their way home. The impact caused the wheel of the tricycle to crush the child, resulting in critical injuries. They were rushed to Hospital E where they were diagnosed with multiple traumatic shocks, severe hemorrhagic shock, and swelling and contusions in various areas of their body.

The patient had blunt abdominal trauma and pelvic trauma, which was classified as a serious and dangerous emergency by MSc. Do Quoc Phong, Deputy Head of the Department of Intensive Care and Poison Control. The young age of the patient, multiple injuries, severe hemorrhagic shock, and high risk of death made this an urgent case.

Doctors quickly embolized the patient’s internal iliac artery to stop the bleeding at the sites of severe blood loss. The child received nearly 4 liters of blood transfusion within the first 24 hours to stabilize their condition. While blood transfusions helped the patient overcome the critical stage, they also posed potential risks and complications that needed immediate attention.

Following iliac artery embolization, the medical team continued treating the patient’s bleeding to stabilize them. The surgical team specializing in digestive surgery repaired the bladder rupture site and addressed other abdominal injuries. After receiving treatment for four days, the child’s health stabilized and they were monitored and rehabilitated.

Dr. Phong emphasized the importance of quick and accurate treatment for pediatric patients with complex multi-traumatic shock. Thanks to prompt first aid and emergency transportation by the E Hospital team, the child’s life was saved.

This accident serves as a reminder that children are vulnerable to accidents while riding bikes or tricycles. Parents should supervise their children when they ride bikes or tricycles on busy streets or roads.

Additionally, parents should encourage their children to take extra classes if they have any learning disabilities or difficulties but it is important that they prioritize their safety while commuting.

Lastly, parents should educate themselves about proper bike maintenance to avoid accidents caused by faulty equipment such as brake failure or tire blowouts.

In conclusion, quick response time is crucial when it comes to saving lives especially for pediatric patients with complex multi-traumatic shock cases like this one at Hospital E.
